Is smoking CBD bad for you?Molly Roe
If you’ve read our blog before, you know that we like to discuss the various benefits of our pure CBD prerolls. CBD has become quite popular recently in many forms besides smokeables, including edibles, tinctures, topical oils, vapors, etc. But is smoking CBD harmful to your health? The short answer? It depends on many factors.
First it’s important to note that smoking pure CBD flower is not as harmful as smoking tobacco products. A 2005 study showed that there has been no causal link found between smoking cannabis products and cancer, which is one of the biggest risks associated with smoking tobacco.
Smoking anything has potential risks, but CBD products have been proven to be much safer and have less potential risks on health. Smoking CBD flower in excess will, of course, have potential health risks such as bronchitis. This is why we recommend using CBD responsibly and always consulting with your doctor before using CBD, especially if you take any prescription drugs.
CBD may help you feel more relaxed and calm, and can potentially reduce chronic pain and inflammation. Additionally, smoking normal amounts of CBD does not result in a “high” feeling, because it does not have psychoactive effects.
Long story short? Smoking pure CBD is generally considered safe and is well-tolerated by most people. A detailed report from the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017 declared that “naturally occurring CBD is safe and well tolerated in humans and is not associated with any public health effects.”
